Orange County Wage & Hour Dispute Attorney

The Right Compensation for Your Hard Work

You did the work, you deserve the pay. It is only right to expect your employer to pay you according to the terms of your employment. You also have state and federal laws backing up your rights. When an employer fails to meet wage and hour obligations, either through error or intentional malfeasance, you are entitled to pursue legal recourse to recover the pay you have earned, including additional money damages, penalties and attorneys fees. We represent employees in wage and hour cases on both an individual basis and through the class action process where one employee or a group of employees can seek compensation for all employees who suffered wage and hour violations.
